What"s the best way to paint 30 year old formica walls in a bath-room. Also what do I do about sanding,and priming the walls.?

Formica Walls ?


This is a difficult one. I would suggest asking this in the topic of painting. The old formica you speak of is, I assume, melamine. Usually, this after 30 years, would have some bubbling or peeling at the edges, even on walls not within wet areas? I would suggest replacement with new or a fiberglass panel kit if within the wet areas. Sorry I can't provide a better answer but I'm sure the Painting section can help.

Good Luck!
